Sunday Team Ride – My Hungover Quest to Lose Weight

Posted: Category: Training 3 Comments

Rosanna and I were over at Dustin and Elizabeth’s for her birthday party. Dustin made sushi rolls and kept popping bottles of wine which I chased with 2 cans of Rainier Beer. I know, classy.

This morning I woke up late, queazy and 171 pounds. 171 pounds!

I was 145 pounds last season.  Sheesh.  Think I should start eating healthier?

But cheeseburgers are SO good!

Anyway, I was running a bit late and was supposed to meet the team in Kirkland so instead of riding all the way over, I drove to Mercer Island, parked and rode up to Cafe Ladro.


Ride – 45 miles

Bike – Klein Performance Touring 52-42 x 13-27 Sun Wheels

Breakfast – nothing

Ride Food – Small bottle of HEED and small bottle of Accelerade

It was a good ride, mostly for the guys I got to ride with.  I haven’t hung out with Brad for a while and I really missed him.  It was good to sit and chat with him and Dustin as they are great friends and I love the time I get to spend with them.  Good friends kick ass.

Came home to take care of my bride.  she isn’t feeling so hot (ahem… too much wine)

Off to have dinner with Jeff and Anna.  They both just ran the Seattle marathon and I am sure they are STARVING.

  • You’re just “getting in shape” for your seasonal job as Santa Claus, right? :)

  • good times. thanks for drinking those last two rainiers – they have been in there since i moved in – actually they sat out back near the BBQ and baked in the sun, six months later were snowed on, and, a year later, eventually washed off and chilled just for you.

    Bad Brian, no cheeseburgers, no dessert.
